Nelroy Giddings Arrest

Babyboomer parents and grandparents often wonder how it is possible that their kids may suffer grave consequences from smoking pot when they themselves turned out just fine. Legal troubles aside, researchers have found plenty of new evidence that Marijuana’s health risks haven been vastly underestimated by the users of yesteryear.

Pot also packs a bigger wallop now than it did in the ’70s. Marijuana has become more potent exposing users to much higher levels of THC, the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis. The brain’s functioning is greatly impacted by increasing impact of THC on its metabolism.

Using modern brain imaging, scientists have found that vital brain activities decline with the consumption of Marijuana, and the data shows that the effects are long-lasting – if damages can be reversed is largely unknown. Another big unknown is how a person’s genes and environment may cause the development of psychiatric disorders. Some studies have concluded that people with a certain gene variant are several times more likely to develop schizophrenia after repeated Marijuana consumption.

However, there are also voices of caution among Marijuana researchers that findings of those studies cannot be applied to the public at large. Igor Grant, director of the Center for Medicinal Cannabis Research at the University of California doesn’t believe there is any compelling evidence that people develop more psychiatric problems, anxiety, depression, or even psychosis as a result of marijuana use. He says that if there was such a causal effect, the surge of the drug’s popularity in the ’60s and ’70s should have seen a distinct increase in cases of schizophrenia – which is apparently not the case.

Whichever way you choose to look at it, the statistics give good reason to be cautious: A recent National Survey on Drug Use and Health found that among marijuana users over age 12, almost 35 percent used marijuana 20 or more days in the past month.

Watch an EMDR Session. How Does it Work?

Eye Movement Desensitizing Reprocessing Therapy

There is a real trend amongst holistic drug treatment centers to offer EMDR therapy as a part of an overall addiction recovery program.

EMDR, which stands for Eye Movement Desensitizing Reprocessing therapy, is a still somewhat controversial therapeutic technique that supposedly helps people to cope with the memory of traumatic events. Proponents rave about its efficacy and simplicity, and skeptics just want to see a bit more research data before jumping to firmly on that EMDR bandwagon.

But what is it? What is it supposed to do, and why should you get it done? I could explain, but this short video, produced by a therapist who uses the technique, does a pretty good job of answering these questions while letting you watch the process.

Is the Salvation Army Rehab Right for You?

Anyone, rich or poor, can get addiction treatment at the Salvation Army. They do good work and Good Works, and they don’t get the recognition they deserve.

Here’s a testimonial video of a woman describing how the Salvation Army helped her get her life and her Faith back on track.

As a Faith based organization, they aren’t a perfect fit for everyone, but for a lot of us out there who sometimes need a little help, they are always there.

If you need help, remember that with places like the Salvation Army running treatment programs across the country, a lack of funds is no excuse to keep on using.

It’s a nice story of a woman who got the help she needed and made it through.

Spend a Few Weeks Living Like a Meth Addict While Watching This Video – Sad but Human

Meth makes people disappear. Loved ones addicted to meth may live in the same town, yet for all the real contact we have with them, they may as well be on the moon. And this can be very tough for anyone who has never been sucked into that life to understand.

This documentary follows a few lives in a small community of meth addicts in Australia. It follows them during week long binges and crashes – in and out of jail, and hospital, and although it’s pretty disturbing at times, it’s not a movie that’s trying to "scare anyone straight". It’s not yet another "faces of meth" variation.

These Australian addicts look and act the same as binging meth addicts anywhere and yet through the erratic behavior and shocking health consequences, the people shine through as people, not just junkies. The film humanizes the people of meth addiction as it reveals a very different, and devastating, lifestyle.

Captivating and educating and sad – and very worth spending a few minutes to watch [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cY_vwZyye2U&hl=en%5DPart 2

Addicted to Pain Pills? Watch These Short Videos and Learn How to Get Clean

Pain pills, we are a country of pain pill abusers, and in the last year or so (at least according to the DEA) an additional 1 million pain pill abusers have joined our swelling ranks.

7 million people in America are using pain medications to get high – every day. A lot of these people want out, but as the story goes, this ride is a heck of a lot easier getting on than getting off.

7 million – people with a big problem, a lot of people that never expected to be "junkies" and a lot of people that just aren’t sure how to get off these medications.

And a few of these people are sharing their stories in a way that I think has real power to help those still uncertain about a journey through recovery.

Cold turkey, weaning off, Methadone, Buprenorphine, Suboxone, Subutex…? A lot of choices – and it’s very hard to know what to do.

I have been watching a number of opiate addicts as they share their recovery story through personal videos posted online. These videos are never well produced, but they are always honest and they describe the options for pain pill recovery from the perspective of someone going through the process – and in real time.

If you know you need to get off these pills, watch and learn from other going through it – and get more comfortable with the process; and ultimately, jump in with both feet and start your own voyage back into "real" life.

Methadone

This guy is describing his first few days on methadone – how he feels after 6 days on methadone, and what the process of taking methadone is like.

Marijuana – New Research Says It’s Twice as Strong as It Was 20 Years Ago

Today’s marijuana is pretty strong stuff. Scientists keeping track of this kind of thing report that they’ve never seen marijuana as strong as what’s floating about now, and they’ve been keeping track of marijuana potency levels since 1970.
 
The University of Mississippi Potency Monitoring Project has just issued a report on increasing THC levels in Marijuana. The university research group has analyzed almost 63 000 seized marijuana samples since its inception more than 3 decades ago, and they have laboriously charted the steady increase in strength.
 
Today, the average seized marijuana has a potency of 9.6%, which is twice what it was in 1983.
The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) funds the research project, and they say that this increase in potency increases the risks of acute impairment and marijuana addiction.

The researchers did not discuss their testing methodology in determining potency increases.
